Scar Revisions

Do You Have a Scar that You Are Unhappy with?

Come in for a consult and together we can decide if a scar revision is good option for you. Most scar revisions can be done in the office setting. Local anesthetic is used to numb the area around the existing scar and the old scar is surgically removed and the new incision is closed in layers of absorbable stitches with the top layer sitting just under the skin which you can’t see and will not need to be removed. The area is covered with a water resistant covering so that you can shower the next day. You will be able to drive yourself to and from your appointment. Depending on the size and location of your scar revision most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a few days. Generally, scar revisions are considered cosmetic and therefore not covered by your insurance plan but we can offer you very competitive pricing options.
